Happy Eye is a camera you wear on your face

Ever want to snap a picture, but by the time you reach for your phone the moment has passed? Check out Happy Eye.

It’s a wearable camera that looks a bit like a more basic version of Google Glass. Clip it to your ear, and you can capture anything seen from your point of view, whether it’s stills or videos.

Warning: it might make you a social outcast. Would you really invite someone wearing one of these to a party?

It has an 8-megapixel sensor and records video in 1080p HD. So your exploits should be captured in a nice crisp, grain-free resolution. It also has a 1A torch built in, so you can record at night.

Connect it to your phone over Bluetooth, and you can see what it sees on your phone’s screen. Connect to it over Wi-Fi, and you can set it recording from the within the app, though you can’t over Bluetooth.

It can record for 90 minutes continuously before the battery gives up the ghost, and on standby, it’ll last 240 hours. It takes 90 minutes to charge to full.

It’s already surpassed its funding goal, and still has 39 days to go. However, it was only seeking $5,000AUD in the first place. It’s raised $9,000AUD, and will cost $119AUD (£56) with the remaining early bird. It will ship in December.
